Contest Time! It’s In The Bag From Spool No. 72 (2)

Anthropologie Work BagNot too long ago I examined the texture-iffic touches of Anthropologie’s latest bag collection and now they’ve sent an e-mail touting the identical. She rushed over with a new bag and helped me transfer my stuff, which was sweet, and nicely timed, mainly because I was oblivious to what was about to happen. For Fall 2011, Anthropologie has returned their focus to two things we enjoy them for: colour and print. These Arctic Animal Push Pins are no longer for sale on Anthropologie , but I believe they have been retailing for about $12. Unless you have considerable practical experience removing stains, do not purchase it. Dry cleaners do not operate miracles.

I loved the compartments, essential clip & water bottle holder (which I did not comprehend snaps in and out), but even though I adore the bag I in the end decided to return it. I was super disappointed as I had been lusting immediately after this bag for a long time, but in the end it just did not match my objective. When the shaping work is accomplished with a torch, the annealing procedure is nevertheless completed in a kiln. When I spotted this polka-dot Merona scarf at Target, I knew it would be perfect to recreate the Voluminous scarf from Anthropologie. Congrats to absolutely everyone showcased beneath – you have won a $50 Anthropologie Present Card!!

I was even willing to appear previous the zipper closure, primarily simply because the bag is so tall that I can very easily place my wallet on the bottom for safety when riding the T. To top rated it all off, there is a crucial strap so I wont loose my keys (the small items!). This bag closes like an old doctor’s bag – there are two mechanical pivots which let the bag to open and close, and the front closes slightly below the back. Anthropologie continues to spread its jewelry wings, commissioning ever a lot more artisans for its intricate pieces and several collections.

As awesome as Chloe looks in the skirt I don’t think that’s a realistic outfit for most of us. Certainly not a thing I could wear to function. This was fixable by playing around with the sides of the bag, massaging them like clay until the bag sat in a naturally closed state. A super nice saleslady noticed my bag had huge holes in it and that my little butter dish was about to go tumbling out. I was inspired to make this by the infamous Anthropologie ruffled shower curtain.

With new ( and returning !) style leadership in the fold the inventive group came together to make a cohesive collection that evokes this season’s hot silhouettes although staying correct to the Anthropologie inventive spirit. Anthropologie thinks you might want to wear it while riding your bike out to the local street marketplace in an emerging market country, but given that that would necessitate shorts that I have not listed and a passport and a helmet (or this amazing scarf helmet !), I am not going to recommend you do that.
